Match Winner Finney Says We Shouldn't Be Relying On Last Minute Goals

Saturday’s match winner, Oli Finney, has told the club’s official website that he is pleased to be back on the goal trail again and that he hopes it is the beginning of a purple patch.

Finney popped up in stoppage time to tuck home a stoppage time winner at Plough Lane to end a run of 11 games without a goal in open play. The Staffordshire-based youngster, 23, did score a consolation penalty away at Portsmouth last month.

Finney now has four for the season and the attack-minded midfielder honestly admits that he should be close to double figures with the chances he has had.

The midfielder told “I have had a load of chances and I should have had about 10 goals. I know that with this team and the players we have that I will get chances in the games and I need to take more of them.

“The gaffer and Kenny have been on to me to just concentrate on my technique and the one on Saturday fell nice. It was a great header down from Ports and I couldn’t miss really. It was a volley and it was great to see it go in because it meant we won the game after looking like we had drawn it with their late goal.

“We spoke about things afterwards and the gaffer said ‘great, it’s another late winner’ but we know we shouldn’t be leaving it that late. It won’t be like that every week. We need to score more goals and make sure we put these games to bed and not have to rely on last minute goals.

“It is always good to win games that way as a player but we don’t want to be leaving it to the last minute if we can help it.”
